Subject: Good Preventitive film for the 1967 youth(Part I & 2)
For its time, this was a good film for youngsters to realize the dangers of taking narcotics. Perhaps now it seems somewhat melodramtic. Unfortunately, the problem is far from over.
Subject: Before ringers lactate there was bennies and heroin
Interesting film with Kevin Tighe from the 1970's Emergency show starring as a person who spirals quickly down in various drug addictions. "Only squares get hooked" the narrator tells us in this voiced over film. This film depicts the character Hank (with narration) in a course of shooting smack -101. The party's over when the the swinger Helen is jonesing in police custody.

Watching this film and realizing Kevin Tighe (Emergency!) just makes it that much more fun. Let's see, the movie was made in 1967. Tighe was born in 1944, making him one of the most oldest high school students in recent memory. Anyways, he's suffering in school, so what is a hick kid to do? He turns to drugs. First pills, then pot, then heroin. It's pretty amazing how much of an immediate dowspiral he takes. One moment he's trying heroin for the first time, the next moment he's selling his mom's silverware. Luckily an addict was caught, and, realizing she couldnt get any more heroin, rats on everyone and everybody! The ending is similar to 'Drug Addiction'. I thought this film was great! Highly reccomended!
Subject: Watson, quick, the needle!
so pot smoking leads straight to heroin and inevitable addiction?
what about hash? opium? LSD? crystal meth?
Slow down boy, enjoy your inexorable slide into dependancy.
And thanks guys for the explicit tips on how to cook heroin. I'm going to hitch up the white horse immediately!
